'The team is far, far more aware of their role in the Marvel Universe not just as mentors, but as students. The Champions aren't the "farm team" anymore - their peers are the Avengers.' - Mark Waid

"I have a really frustrating habit of having to read basically everything. I'm not one of these guys who can come on and take over a book and just read the previous arc or read the first issue. I need to feel very familiar with everything that's gone before. So if you're taking over for characters that have 30-plus year histories, you have a lot of homework. But the bottom-line is, if you do that, you start to see the sort of recurring themes and motifs of a character." -- Nick Spencer

"I’ve got a real soft spot for Quasar. I was a big fan of the original Mark Gruenwald run as a kid, and my entire Cap run so far has been pretty much a love song to Gruenwald’s run on that character." -- Nick Spencer

'A story that I know influenced this and had a big impact on me when I was younger was the end of the John Walker saga in “Captain America”; when the Skull had his consciousness put in a body that looked like Steve Rogers. As a kid I had a visceral reaction to that. The idea of that was terrifying. So it stuck with me. It’s one of my all-time favorite Cap stories.' - Nick Spencer

Josh Green: Let’s talk about Kate Spencer for a moment. What is it about her character that distinguishes her from most other heroes in comics?

Marc Andreyko: Her acceptance that sometimes the legal system fails and that there are bad-guys out there who don’t deserve to live. Often it seems indulgent, at best, and incompetent, at worst, when these heroes continually catch and send to the looney bin or prison, villains who only want to kill. They’re not gonna get better, so why risk them escaping? Again. And again.

"Rick Remender, who was the previous writer on Captain America, had been building towards this story of Hydra having infiltrated various institutions of government and various super teams. I thought that sounded like too big of a story. I drilled it down and thought, what if there’s just one very valuable Hydra plant? What if they’re looking for 100 people, but there’s just one? So I started asking, who’s the worst person it could possibly be?" - Nick Spencer

"If all this was was a cheap sales gimmick, it would've been announced weeks, if not months, beforehand. The twist was held back specifically and not spoiled in mass media to protect the story and the book. Marvel put the actual comic first here. I was very happy about that." - Nick Spencer

Now that it's been a month, here's a full third of the 30-page issue...

"We all went into it with the best of intentions and we were all very excited. It started out fun, and a neat challenge, but it became more and more trying as the series went on. As with Bedard, Palmiotti, Gray and Beechen, I had very little say. As time passed, we were promised a more prominent role, but the reality was we wound up having less and less to do with it." - Sean McKeever
